Alle volte ho questa perversione per le altezze❤Modern architecture in quartiere Isola is one of the best ever seen! 😍

"Thank you for hurting me I really needed it" by @melanie_bonajo at Spazio osservatorio of @fondazioneprada really touched my heart ❤😌

Turista per un giorno a Firenze ❤Sono stato al consolato spagnolo per richiedere i documenti necessari per un master di abilitazione all'insegnamento! Attempting to escape from Uk before Brexit will make our situation as foreigners even worst 😌

One of the last works by the Kienholzes, 76 J.C.s Led the Big Charade (1993–1994), an installation that transforms baby dolls, wagon parts and different cultural and historical depictions of Jesus Christ into crucifixes, taking aim at religion in its institutionalized forms devoid of spirituality.

Searching for vintage homeware with @giadadegasperi in Brera last Saturday🦄

Mornings like these at @fondazioneprada ☕️

When the aesthetics of the building is so amazing that you can't stop taking pics❤@fondazioneprada is my place!

"Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won't either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could."

Lunch with my bae @giadadegasperi at @trattoriadelcorso 💜🦄Finally together in Milan!

I had an aesthetically pleasing breakfast this morning in Milan🍰❤

"I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want. I can never train myself in all the skills I want. And why do I want? I want to live and feel all the shades, tones and variations of mental and physical experience possible in my life. And I am horribly limited."

"The only way art lives is through the experience of the observer. The reality of art begins with the eyes of the beholder, through imagination, invention and confrontation."

"Cause if one day you wake up and find that you're missing me and your heart starts to wonder where on this earth I could be".

Sometimes my mind is just miles away from the hate people spread on a daily basis💥

"Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won’t either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up."

L’Orologio Molle è una delle immagini di Dalí più famose. Questi orologi che si sciolgono, diventati il suo “marchio di fabbrica”, hanno origine dal suo più famoso dipinto del 1931, La Persistenza della Memoria. Nel mondo di Dalí, il tempo non è rigido; è un tutt’uno con lo spazio ... fluido e senza limiti. L’inaspettata malleabilità dell’orologio implica che l’orologio stesso non può più funzionare, e, di conseguenza, perde ogni significato. Con l’uso di questo simbolo Dalí tentava di comunicare che la percezione umana del tempo cambia a seconda dell’umore e delle azioni.

Ignite your heart young boy❤

“I come from a farming background, in Shropshire, where my father was a shepherd,” David Brian Smith explains. “My mother found the picture of the Shepherd tending his flock in a newspaper from the 1930s. I’ve made several paintings from this image and have enjoyed using the subject of the shepherd because of my autobiographical relationship with it. I use the image to jump between different styles of painting and arrive at new ones. At first I was concerned about repeating the use of the shepherd, but there are so many possible variations of the image that I can explore. Each time I can reinvent the space, light and palette within the picture. I paint on herringbone linen because of its association to rural heritage, to flat caps and tweed jackets. I work on one canvas at a time, and this allows me to delve into and create a world around me. The life-sized scale is important, it makes me feel like part of the scene I’m painting, I hope the viewer has a similar experience.”🐑❤

It's always time to do homeware shopping at @maisonsdumonde ❤Look how pretty are the copper pineapple cups🍍

"Some do drugs, others go out for a run, but at the end we’re all just searching for that tiny space, perhaps a hole, that gives us shelter from the terrible reality of the world."

Ai Weiwei's suspended bamboo and silk beasts highlight ancient chinese mythology inside Palazzo Strozzi.

"Preferiría sentarme a vender tortillas en el suelo del mercado de Toluca, en lugar de asociarme con esta mierda de artistas parisienses, que pasan horas calentándose los valiosos traseros en los “cafés”, hablan sin cesar acerca de la cultura, el arte, la revolución, etcétera. Se creen los dioses del mundo…".❤

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”

Oggi ho fatto danni da @cosstores a Bologna😍❤

@la_menagere is a stunning bistrot and flower shop❤🌺Definitely worth booking a table in their lovely rooms!🍴

“And if you are someone who still carries hope in your heart, kindness in your eyes and generosity in your fingertips despite terrible people happening to you, thank you. You are one of the few truly pure things left in this world, and you deserve to be protected.”

Richard Wilson's 20:50 has been shown in each of the Gallery's venues since 1991. Viewed from a platform, 20:50 transform the gallery into a site of epic illusion: simultaneously a polished floor, infinite clear pool, an expensive and indefinable virtual space that absorbs and mirrors the gallery architecture. The room is in fact entirely flooded in recycled engine oil (from which the work takes its name) - thick, pitch black and absolutely indelible.

This my princess👩🏻💖My mum is really my inspiration. She has always supported my dreams and aspirations!!

I'm an observer of life. I like to watch people, and I like to watch cactus. I like to talk to mountains and communicate with my friends in the other spheres and dimensions🌵🌱

«Il successo ce lo si guadagna, oserei dire ce lo si inventa. Niente arriva per caso anche se la fortuna di cadere al posto giusto, nel momento giusto, con la persona giusta agevola parecchio. Ma la sorte, si sa, è alterna. Non è proprio la base su cui costruire il proprio successo. Il talento, il tuo, è la vera forza».❤
